Give Me All the Fall Colors: White Jeans #3



When I see a pile of leaves I  instantly get that childhood urge to throw them up in the air, run and jump into them, or simply just play with them, don't you?  It goes without saying that one of my favorite things about fall are the natural  colors that surround us.  Even if you live in a city, like me, you can find pockets of that natural beauty without traveling too far.  Check out a local park, a hiking trail nearby, or just take the time to stop and notice the leaves, the fallen pine cones, the change in perennial plants and bushes, pumpkins that line peoples lawns, right in your neighborhood. 


Taking outfit photos indoors is always so difficult for me, especially as daylight is hard to come by after work, so taking advantage of the outdoor setting before it gets too cold has been my goal this year.  I've also been trying to shoot three outfits at a time in order to minimize the time I spend on the blog and away from my family. This is my last white jean outfit, see #1 and #2, and it's one that I think perfectly transitions me from fall into early winter.  Cooler temps are referred to as 'sweater weather' and I love me some sweaters.  What's great about this one, is that it's not over-sized, chunky and let's just cuddle up on the couch and hibernate through the winter (those are my favorite types), but it's a sweater/dress/tunic.  It's totally acceptable to wear to the office with jeans/ leggings and paired up with short booties, OTKB, pearls or funky jewelry. Because of the simple cut and neutral color, you can really use it as a basic piece and dress it up, down, funky, add color, basically you can style it whatever way you want!  I decided wanted the natural environment to stand out, so I kept everything else super simple and neutral.  I love how this outfit turned out.  Playing with the different shades of gray and adding the wine-deep-purple purse gives it just enough dimension without taking over.  The pearls are a simple and classy touch without making the outfit too formal.

  1. Leaves are so much fun! I can completely relate about the difficulty getting pictures. It's dark by the time I get home from work so it makes things so much harder. Plus, with it getting colder I don't want to be freezing. Your outfit is so cute though and I love the white jeans. Sierra Beautifully Candid

    1. Yes once it gets really cold it's a nightmare. Sometimes I freeze my butt off so in the winter I don't stray far from home for photos.

    1. I am glad you were able to find the balance between busy, busy and downtime. Thanks for the lovely complement. I also love the bag with the nuteral colors.

  5. Throw extra leaves for me! The leaves have not changed color in my neck of the woods yet and so I am totally living vicariously through your experience! That's awesome that you are shooting more at once and I think that's really smart. One outfit at a time is too time consuming and who's got time for that?! Love this entire outfit! The pearl necklace is a nice touch to complete your look.
